“The LA-based singer still values the importance of an absolutely killer bass line pushed front and center, but on “Stronger” the production is cleaner and clearer, a song that’s fingerclicky cool, with a pinch of 60s shimmy and a pipette full of 80s power pop.”
“[Gothic Tropic] seem to have tapped into something special”
“[Gothic Tropic’s music] is comparable to jazz in the way its creation is approached: its success is based upon each member’s ability to selflessly collaborate but also individually flourish.”
– LA WEEKLY
Los Angeles’ Gothic Tropic introduces a new brand of female fronted, guitar-driven indie rock. Friday on Bullett, Gothic Tropic shared their new track “Don’t Give Me Up” off their upcoming album.
“A lovelorn dance ballad, the single is a catchy mix of ’80s synth-pop with a hint of rock ‘n roll, à la Debbie Harry-with minimal guitars and a subtle synth line, Peruti’s voice is the star.”
About Gothic Tropic:
The brainchild of Cecilia Della Peruti, Gothic Tropic keeps the vibe playful and punchy, bringing audiences into a new era of female rock nobility, nodding to stars like Debbie Harry, and Chrissie Hynde. Delivering a blend of Richard Lloyd and Nile Rodgers on guitar, Gothic Tropic’s Della Peruti has won sponsorships with Fender, and leading pedal manufacturers, and works professionally as a touring and session player for Charli XCX, BØRNS, and more.
